October Instagram Favorites

Welp, it’s October and I am officially jealous of everyone on Instagram. At least those who get to experience autumn.

Everything is so warm and bathed in golden light, it’s unbelievable. My heart aches for fall: to see leaves change their colors, for frosty mornings spent in oversized sweaters, for withered trees and the smells of pumpkin, apple, and cinnamon.

Meanwhile, my October looks like that ^^^up there^^^ when it’s not all gross and sunny. Sure, Manila afternoons are quite nice now that golden hour is actually a little bit golden, but it’s hardly enjoyable when you’re stuck in the city or in the office.

I just want to live in a country where seasons change.

Today, I’m listing my favorite Instagram accounts for the month. I know, I know: we’re not even halfway through October yet! Shouldn’t these things be posted at the end of the month?

As I see it, the right time to share pretty autumn photos is right now.

That cat is acting like a real person and I want it.

Cay’s Instagram contains lots of natural elements, flat whites and negative space, and furry babes.

I just started following Benedicte recently and holy bananas, her Instagram is easily one of my favorites. Organized clutter, great textures, and nature.

I love nature and I wish I could be surrounded by it 24/7. I’ve been living/spending too much time in the city for too long.

Marte’s feed is aspirational, exuding quiet elegance. I try to gravitate towards flat and bright whites because they look so clean, but chiaroscuro will always have my heart.

Brie’s Instagram has everything I love: nature (of course), landscapes, gorgeous colors, a baby dog, chickens, and food.

Corinth has another aspirational feed, documenting her lovely life in the Yukon with her husband (they met on Instagram!). Good thing she doesn’t have a cat as cute as Freakie or else I’d be coveting her life!

‘Til next month! Feel free to share your favorite feeds with me. :)

    The only way you can experience autumn is to get out of the Philippines and go to a place less tropical. I love when it gets cold, but I cannot stand the gloominess that autumn brings.

    Oh man, I need to clean up my instagram and make it better looking. I try to curate it somewhat and it still ends up with pics of lunch and selfies. Sigh.

    It’s getting colder here in Philly, I will post some fall pictures for you! :D
